S83 Maypole

S83 Maypole

FOR INDOOR OR OUTDOOR USE

Our Maypole has been used in hundreds of schools and organisations accross the UK for over 60 years. The 274cm pole is supplied in two sections making transporting and storage so much easier. It is possible to transport the maypole in a car (the largest section is the base which is 95cm squared). The overall height when constructed is 366cm.

The pole fits into a steel base and topped with a revolving circle and crown, both of which are fitted with hooks to allow for 24 dancers.

NEW: The base now includes a MDF board (colurs may vary) attached to the metal base. This gives the base extra weight for increased stability and safety.

Also new is the multifunctional design of the crown. You can choose if your want the top and lower rings fixed or rotating allowing you to operate the maypole in many ways, create many differnt patterns and perform many dances.

The Maypole is powder coated in Forest Green. Comes complete with 24 braids (supplied in Blue, Yellow, Red and Green). Extra sets of braids can be purchased separately if required.

H: 3660mm x W: 950mm x D: 950mm

TW2012 Play Pole for Students with Disabilities

TW2012 Play Pole for Students with Disabilities

Children love interacting with this brand new Play Pole designed for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. It can be used all year round, indoors or outdoors. This is a fantastic way of promoting team work.

This is an adaptation of our traditional Maypole. This Play pole will cater for 8 users. The crown which can be fixed to make a pattern with the braids or left to rotate, has 8 hooks for the braids to hang. Unlike our Mini Playpole for preschool children, this special Playpole has braids that are 12ft in length. This is so users with wheelchairs can use the pole at a distance creating enough wheelchair space between each student. If the crown is fixed and a pattern is formed down the pole then the braids will naturally shorten but there is still space for the wheelchaires to get closer to the pole.

The base is a petal shape which is heavy for safety and avoid any chance of the pole being pulled over. We do stress that the pole should NEVER BE LEFT UNATTENDED and only used under supervision.

We recommend you use your own music and students can sing along to familiar tunes at the same time as having lots of fun. The braids are sent in 4 colours, red, yellow, green and blue. They have a handle at one end for the student to hold. If the crown is left to rotate, students will learn to move in the same direction to turn the crown. If fixed students will learn to create a pattern on the pole. For more able minded students you can have some students moving in an opposite direction to create a more complex pattern. This will promote teamwork.

The Play pole has been designed with a weighted base for safety in an attractive flower petal shape. It is portable and breaks down into 4 parts for storage (crown, bottom pole, top pole and base).

Approximate height when constructed 245cm x W: 97cm

CDM The Maypole Manual

CDM The Maypole Manual

Brand New Maypole Manual...... A must for anyone needing guidance in teaching children (or adults!) how to dance around a maypole.

A completely new book looking at the practicalities of Maypole dancing. Designed for teachers with little or no experience of teaching dance, the traditional dances are laid out in a clear and easy to use format with photos, diagrams and a Dance at a Glance feature.

Maypole Dancing is constantly changing and growing, and so a number of modern dances are also included, graded from simple to challenging. Issues of inclusivity, creativity and cross-curricular work are addressed in detail, along with non-ribbon dances from the Victorian and Tudor periods which are great for bringing history to life.

"Easy to use manual, even for a novice" - Folkstone Primary Acadamy
"The layout was very clear" - St Michaels C of E After School Club, Ashford, kent
"This is the answer to our prayers! A really well written book and entertaining music CD to get people of all ages maypole dancing" - Paul James, Halsway Manor, National Centre for the Folk Arts.
"It's clear, informative, easy to read and will be a great source of information to any school. It really does include everything!" - Tanya Wong, Educational Aids

Please note for invoice purposes there will be no VAT charged on the manual.
